Legal Career Resources

Federal Law Clerk Information System (“FLCIS”)

Prospective judicial clerk applicants may search a national database of federal law clerk vacancies by visiting the FLCIS website. This reliable resource compiles information supplied directly by the individual office of each federal judge. Job seekers can locate positions for federal district and appellate courts, and bankruptcy, international trade, claims, and magistrate courts. Each job listing contains the following information: contact person; court’s address; dates for interviews; position dates; and requirements for submitting applications.

Legal Careers at Martindale.com

This employment resource allows searchers to view job postings via the “Find a Job” section. Powered by law.com and updated daily, this site is a free service for job candidates. In the Lawyer Locator section, users can locate additional information about prospective employers. There is also career advice on resumes, interviews, and job seeking strategies, along with Vault Insider Reports on major law firms.

Law Periscope

Law Periscope profiles the 300 largest U.S. law firms using the extensive information provided from the firms’ individual websites. This site helps job seekers to efficiently locate a law firm, find contact information, investigate the firm and its attorneys and clients, evaluate its practice expertise, as well as retrieve online newsletters and other publications. Users need only search this one site to retrieve an overview of each firm in a condensed format. There may be links to the individual firms’ recruiting page, firm history, press releases, etc. The Advanced Search feature allows retrieval of profiles of firms matching selected criteria. The Attorney Search feature retrieves biographies on the over 100,000 lawyers employed at these firms.

Additionally, there is also an employer directory, legal recruiter directory, salary charts, and a career management section.
